This study investigates the effect of hormone therapy for prostate cancer on T1 mapping values obtained from MR Fingerprinting. No differences were observed between tumour T1 values before and after treatment. However, lower T1 MRF values were noted in prostate lesions compared to normal peripheral and transition zones, which is consistent with current literature. Moreover, a significant decrease in T1 values was observed in normal transition zone (TZ) following treatment, which may justify the need of using T1 mapping in contrast-enhanced MRI studies aimed at calculating quantitative TZ-derived parameters.
